Do Bae Man is back at the Military Prosecutor’s office
Do Bae Man and Cha Woo In meet up with their boss at the military prosecutor’s office. The trio share a few words regarding No Tae Nam’s trial.

After Cha Woo In leaves, the boss asks Do Bae Man to teach his juniors well. After Do Bae Man leaves, he receives a text from Cha Woo In who asks him to meet at a coffee café. The place is quite quirky.
Do Bae Man has a funny encounter with the café owner. He waits for Cha Woo In. She comes but with Mr. Kang. The same guy who gave Do Bae Man a piece of insider information regarding his parents’ case. Cha Woo In and Mr. Kang lead Do Bae Man to a secret room in the café which is used as their conference room.

She explains No Hwa Young’s rise to power and Brigadier General Hong Moo Seop who covered up Do Bae Man’s parents’ case. The Brigadier General is wary of No Hwa Young because she is very close to Minister Lee Jae Shik and can surpass the Brigadier General anytime. She further explains the key members of ‘The Patriotic Society’ and Mr. Kang pitches in his ideas too.
No Tae Nam’s humiliation at the military camp

They both meet Mr. Kang and he reveals that he made this attempt in order to put a dent on No Hwa Young and Lee Jae Shik’s plans.
No Tae Nam is met by a friend who comes to pick him up. He asks about his pet Bolt, and his friend says that he didn’t bring him along for the cat is costly and the dog might spoil it.

Yong Moon Gu calls Do Bae Man and brings him up to speed. Do Bae Man is already on his way to capture No Tae Nam. He says he won’t let No Tae Nam escape because it will ruin what he has worked for in the past years. DO Bae Man reaches the port just in time as the boat is leaving. He fights off a few goons, and sees that there is a decoy on the boat. The fixer whom Tae Nam contacted to set him up, greets Do Bae Man.
The scene cuts to a flashback. It is revealed that No Tae Nam ordered for a private plane instead of a boat. The boat is just a smoke screen to buy time for Tae Nam to escape by air.

The Episode Review
The preview for next week shows that No Hwa Young and Yong Moon Gu have realized Do Bae Man’s intentions to some extent. The scenes also show No Tae Nam’s time in the prison.
This episode heavily focused on No Tae Nam’s deserting the camp and the chase that follows. There were no forced attempts at humour or product placement, so it was an enjoyable watch. The episode also set tone for the forth coming episodes. While No Tae Nam’s time in prison will be a focal point, the show appears to also be steering more towards Do Bae Man and Cha Woo In’s revenge. Now that he has made enemy out of No Hwa Young and Yong Moon Gu, things are bound to heat up.
